Update

April 7th, 2019 at 03:53 pm

Six more paychecks left for me and I am trying to keep a good percentage of my money to transfer to savings. In all, I am $9K short of meeting my savings goal. I will post about it until mid July as I am expecting a sick day payout then. My husband is also expecting a health insurance buyout in July as well. Let's see how far I can get. If by any chance there is a surplus, I plan to throw all of it to my Roth IRA.

We are finally seeing some good weather and we're on the third day with not having to heat up the house. I am hoping this is the end of it. There is still half tank of heating oil and that should last us until next November or early December. (Crossing my fingers).

I embarked in some frugal doings this weekend. I stacked digital coupons with manufacturers coupons to get quite a few cleaning supplies, coffee and toothpaste. I saved $21 in all. I also scored a free nice unused grater from the Facebook marketplace. No hassle and easy porch pick up in my own town.

Spring break is next week for me and I am off to Florida but I'll be back for Easter. I used United earned miles to book this trip back in January. The cost? $105 round trip and that's because I wanted to fly Economy and not Basic Economy. This will be my last trip until the summer.

P.S. I am doing research on the "sun ovens" and I am almost positive it might be worth purchasing one for our Florida home. Stay tune; more to come on this.

    Good deal on the coupons! I so like it when I can get some good deals.

    Have a great spring break!
